The Redbreast is a crime novel taking place during both the second world war and Norway at the turn of the millennium. During the second world war we are introduced to a small group of Norwegian Waffen-SS volunteers; Daniel, Gudbrand, Hallgrim and Edvard fight alongside each other begrudgingly in 1944 until they go their separate ways. Years later with much of what happened in the trenches a hazy jumbled memory their fates are again entwined in a mystery that forces Harry Hole to dive headfirst into the world of neo-nazis and the illegal arms trade.

In The Redbreast Nesbo's writing and storytelling ability improve significantly. The plot is complex and the scope vast. Nesbo masterfully juggles two eras without skipping a beat and manages to pace the two merging stories perfectly. I did struggle with the war scenes as I feel Nesbo assumed that his readers would mainly be Norwegians well acquainted with Norway's history in the war. I also felt that major loose ends were not dealt with towards the end of the book.

This one is hard for me to rate. I was sucked into the narrative almost immediately.

Things were going great. Nesbø was throwing out pieces to this puzzle and was gobbling them up like a champ.

Harry's ability to connect with people and his relationship with his partner Ellen were sources of many feels. He meets Rakel for the first time and is instantly smitten and me being the squishy marshmallow that I am loved all of his angst over her. The dynamic he gets going with Halvorsen was heartwarming. Harry gets put through the wringer and my heart broke for him but I'm noticing this as a trend for Nesbø: being mean to Harry. *pets Harry*

All the while I kept up pretty well with the non-linear narrative with its complex twists and turns and multiple characters. I cannot overstate how much I connect with how Nesbø constructs his stories. I also enjoy how he injects relevant topics somehow, sometimes subtly and sometimes heavily but usually without making them the center of the narrative.

I also learned some things about Norway and Norwegian history as this story deals heavily with Nazism, both historically and neo-Nazism. I like learning new things so this all worked for me.

Where things went hinky was the plot twist at the end. I thought it was hokey and it made me sort of wilt like a flower. There's also a thread that didn't get closed which I'm wondering if it will carry over into the next one or if we just get left wondering which will make me angee in my face. Nevertheless, I still wanted to see how it would play out and I can't discount that. Nor can I or would I want to discount how smitten I am with Harry and this series, so I'll go with 3.5 and call it a day.

Recommend to thriller/crime drama fans.

Like the other Joe Nesbo novels I have read so far, The Redbreast engages the reader from the very start and keeps the reader engaged throughout the book. Using shifting time periods and various locations , the reader continues the saga of Harry Hole, a flawed police investigator , with the Norwegian Police Crime Squad.

The storyline alternates between the service of Norwegian Nazis serving in the Waffen SS in WWII near Leningrad, War-torn Germany, and 1999 Norway coming to grips with its emerging neo-Nazi movement. Along the way, the reader gets a glimpse of how Norway dealt with its collaborators at the end of WWII and the period just after the war.

Since it is Joe Nesbo, he leads the reader along a primrose path to keep the reader guessing whom the guilty party until the very end.

Just when the reader has determined the murderer's identity, in typical Joe Nesbo fashion, we find it is actually someone else. Joe twists the reader’s psyche with ease.

You must read this novel.

After Detective Inspector Harry Hole's quick action and training lead him to an action that embarrasses the government, he is kicked upstairs and given routine tasks. The Oslo police may think that they have quieted Harry and his penchant for discovering crimes that others miss, following them to whatever conclusion he finds, but that's not how Harry rolls.

Harry is shunted into a surveillance of old Nazis, those men who years before fought with the Germans during World War II. For a while, it was seen as the patriotic thing to do, although these same men were considered traitors after the war. Now, Oslo is seeing a disturbing rise of Neo-Nazis, and who better to get the scoop on these old men who seem to be inspiring younger men to use violence against the immigrants who have come to Norway to start a new life.

Harry soon discovers a secret that is taking the lives of these few old men left from that earlier time. He discovers that a high-powered rifle useful mainly for assassinations has been illegally imported and reports his findings to his superiors, who ignore his concerns. The former Nazis and their family members start to show up murdered. Can Harry unravel the mystery of what happened all those years ago before someone else is killed?

This is one of the earliest Harry Hole mysteries and fans of the series will enjoy learning Harry's back story. This is when he meets the love of his life, Rakel, and starts his partnership with Halvorsen. We learn about Harry's life as a boy and the sister he loves dearly. Jo Nesbo is definitely one of the premier suspense writers of the current mystery scene, and The Redbreast shows the seeds of how his books will emerge as the series continues. This book is recommended for mystery lovers.
